From introductory text about history: "At the same time, a band of Potawatomie (not Ojibwe) in 1834 came from the Chicago area and settled in two locations not far from Black Oak. One group sunk their roots along Tamarack Creek near Conoveer, the other moved to the shores of Lake Laura, just north of Star Lake. A small group of that band then moved to Indian Lake, south of Lac du Lune. About 1914, all three groups moved to the Crandon-Laona area after having been promised homes, a school, and jobs in the logging industry."
